From General Dailey:
“To me, the VMAQ Monument effort is an example of what 'right' looks like when memorializing our service as Marines.”
When I first heard of the VMAQ Monument Foundation’s effort, I received the news with excitement and a touch of concern. Their plan is very ambitious and requires a sizable amount of money and effort. Marines are always excited and eager to support projects like this; however, if the person leading the charge leaves or some other disaster strikes, the bold plan falls apart. I have seen this on more than one occasion. The thing that grabs me about this campaign is that they have proven to have all the ingredients for success and I want to be a part of it.
The VMAQ Monument Foundation has strong leadership who know how to do this, as evidenced by their success to date. They have a plan. They have anticipated the difficulties and managed them in stride placing their goal within reach. Securing a world class sculptor to go along with the world class National Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola, FL, the "Cradle of Naval Aviation", is no easy task. All of you have done hard things in your Marine Corps careers, whether short or long. You invented new ways to take the fight to the enemy using tactics that had to work right the first time without telling anyone how you did it and Marines on the ground depended on you! Your fellow Electronic Warfare Marines are now depending on you once again. It’s time to tell your story and say, “We were here, and we made a difference!”
So, go tell everyone what we are doing and invite them to join the group that is making this happen. Success in this endeavor will set the VMAQ community apart from the crowd, yet again. I personally know how difficult this type of fundraising effort is so I am offering to match up to $10,000 towards the effort. Are you up for the challenge? Together we can help the world class VMAQ monument cross the threshold!
